Almaty to Altyn Emel 2 day trip between 17-20 Aug.

Post by brynpickering »

Hi, we're planning to rent a 4x4 this week to go to Altyn Emel with an overnight stay. We're 2 people, so would have space for 2-3 more. We'd plan to stay overnight somewhere in Basshi village, which we've heard has guesthouses. Exact dates are flexible (could be 17&18th, 18&19th, or 19&20th).

Also happy to join others who already have a car and can share the driving (if the rental agreement allows).

We just went yesterday 😩. We opted for a guide (more info on a PM I sent you) and went for just one day. All car rental companies we contacted were booked out. It actually worked quite well as a one day tour. We left Almaty at 5am and returned at 8pm. Leaving at 6pm would have made more sense as we waited 40mins for the park office to open (9am). Would be possible to do in a day with your own car too. It was definitely worth it. Particularly the singing dune!

Hope you make it out there 🙂
